Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) is another Republican eager to see an investigation into the Jan. 6 attacks on the U.S. Capitol, reported The Arizona Republic.
Since voting down the Jan. 6 Commission in the House, Biggs and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) have both decided that they now support an investigation, but not because they've had a change of heart. Instead, they believe a fictitious report from Tucker Carlson saying that there could have been FBI agents in the crowd of Capitol attackers that day.
Gohmert took to the House floor last week demanding an investigation into the Jan. 6 attack after he too voted down the measure.
"We really need to know what the FBI knew and when they knew it," said Gohmert. "And not only that, we need to know how much participation did any of our federal friends, either at DOJ, at FBI, or any at the intel community — what kind of role were they playing. Because there's information that came out about the effort to kidnap the Michigan governor and there were federal agents. So, it's been said that there were federal agents involved in that."
Biggs now also agrees.
"It truly demands answers," he said in a radio interview. "It is actually very troublesome to hear what's out there and we need to get to the bottom of that.
